European Fitness Day

The European Fitness Day is a one-day event dedicated to providing opportunities to people to find their move. We ask you to open your doors, provide members and non-members with “try me out” activities, communicate about the day and become part of the biggest movement in Europe.

The role of the European Fitness Day is simple: it is to highlight the role that physical activity plays in improving people’s health by putting the spotlight on fun activities offered by fitness professionals. ISCA will promote the EFD and will ask its members and partners to promote and engage their partners on a national level.

Our aims: To build the capacity of national operators to offer inclusive, relevant and attractive physical activity and fitness activities during and beyond the European Fitness Day; Raise awareness among European citizens about the benefits of being active and the diversity and attractiveness of fitness-oriented activities: Provide specific opportunities to be active for European citizens.

Don’t miss the chance to promote your fitness centre or club and join the movement. Be part of the biggest wave of dance and fitness clubs, gyms, yoga/Pilates and leisure centre operators working together to combat physical inactivity. Join us as change-makers who have a positive impact on people’s lives!
